As Canada struggles with an opioid crisis, Jeff Ennis, MD, offers a safe
alternative for the millions of people who live with chronic pain. It’s selfhypnosis,
a system that can be used to soothe pain without the significant
and even potentially deadly side effects of prescription opioids.
In this cutting-edge book, Dr. Ennis, a psychiatrist and world-class expert
on chronic pain, reviews the disappointing evidence on opioid medications
and builds a case for self-hypnosis as a credible alternative therapy.
He shares the compelling story of his own lifelong struggle with severe
chronic pain and offers step-by-step instructions for self-hypnosis.
